The Sermon On The Mount are words to live by that reveal the nature of Christ. As we study it out, let us remember that they are not merely ethical teachings. In Christ, these words were not only confirmed, but fulfilled.
The Sermon on the Mount only fits when it’s all about what Jesus has done in his lifetime. We do not want to be told how to live our lives. We want the miracles without having to change how we live our lives. How are we to conduct ourselves as disciples? Why should we study the Sermon on the Mount and applies it to our lives.
Jesus is not just a moral teacher but he is also the Lord of our lives. Jesus is not only the teacher but he is also the judge of the world. The Sermon on the Mount is about Jesus preaching, teaching, and healing. Jesus always calls us to be different from the world, how we conduct ourselves and live our lives.
People could not help to follow Jesus because of how he conducted himself.
If we claim to be Jesus disciples how we conduct ourselves matters in all areas of our lives.
